_ The Bayfield Winter Festival is a regional event to "celebrate snow, ice and cabin fever" with the goal of providing outdoor winter activities for local residents and visitors to enjoy. The Festival is managed by a committee of volunteers from local businesses and non-profits. We welcome you to a wild and crazy time in Bayfield!.
Many Bayfield Winter Festival activities are fundraisers for non-profits in our area. Thank you for participating and helping these organizations continue their community service.
